FAQ

Our Products:

Backyard Fun Factory uses the ASTM Standard 1148 as a guideline for designing our play systems.

  • Backyard Fun Factory play systems are made in the USA.
  • We use quality California Redwood, which is the industry-preferred swing set lumber.
  • Our playsets are constructed with 2×6 floor boards, 4×4 support beams, and 4×6 swing beams which far exceeds the ASTM Standard 1148.
  • We install 4×4 gussets in all four corners of the main structure to give your playset added strength.
  • To reduce splintering, the edges and ends of each wood component are routered and molded.
  • Each board is individually dipped and scrubbed with stain to allow for a deeper penetration of stain before assembly.
  • We only use screws and bolts for the installation of your playset.
  • Floor screws are installed from the bottom of the flooring to prevent splinter pockets.
  • To minimize splitting, wall slats are pre-drilled.
  • Doors are built with door frames to prevent sagging.
  • Our playsets are built in panelized sections for easy disassembly for storage in garages or storage facilities.

 

Safety:

At Backyard Fun Factory we understand the importance of protecting our children and we design our play systems to promote a safe, fun environment for our children.

  • We use a semi-transparent redwood stain that is specifically blended for playsets.
  • We use powder-coated hand rails and plastisol covered chains on our swing accessories for added safety.
  • We install grab handles on our deck ladders and side rails on our boardwalks.
  • Bolt holes are counter sunk to reduce injury to children.
  • Sunbursts are installed at the roof peaks to provide additional shade on the open slat forts, protecting your child from the sun.

 

Customization:

Backyard Fun Factory builds a modular playset that is easily manipulated to fit in most residential locations with level and unlevel terrain.

  • Customers have the opportunity to assist in the designing of the layout of their playset purchase.
  • Our playsets are built to grow with the child through adding upper/lower levels and bridging to additional forts.
  • Backyard Fun Factory offers a unique design through the use of the Crooked Windows and the whimsical Curved Roof.
